DXS-3600 Series Layer 3 Stackable 10G Managed Switches
The D-Link DXS-3600 Series Layer 3 Stackable 10G Managed Switches are a set of new, compact, high-performance switches that feature very low latency wire speed 10G Ethernet switching and routing. The 1U height and front-to-back airflow make the DXS-3600 Series suitable for enterprise and campus aggregation network environments. The DXS-3600 Series switches have 8 or 24 fixed 10G SFP+ ports and can accommodate more ports with the addition of an expansion module. The expansion modules not only provide extra 10G SFP+ ports, but also increase flexibility by allowing 120G stacking, 40G uplinks, or low-cost 10GBASE-T connections for different applications.
The DXS-3600 Series provides your network with high-performance 10G Ethernet switching capacities of up to 960 Gbps and forwarding rates of up to 714 Mpps. These switches feature hot-swappable power supplies and fan trays, which enable the switches to have redundant, high-availability architecture. The modular power design allows customers to use AC or DC power sources according to where the switch is deployed. When inserting two power modules, both power modules share the load and help to extend the lifetime of the other. The DXS-3600 Series also features a modular fan design; three fans can back up each other, providing 2+1 redundancy for the system. If a fan fails or the temperature rises, the smart fans will adjust their speed automatically.
The DXS-3600 Series can be deployed using one of two different software images. The Standard Image (SI) features a wide range of Layer 2, VLAN, multicasting, Quality of Service (QoS), security, data center, and static routing functions. The Enhanced Image (EI) features comprehensive IPv4/v6 routing including RIP, VRRP, OSPF, BGP, and L3 multicasting features such as IGMP, MLD, PIM-DM, SM, SDM, SSM, and DVMRP. The Enhanced Image (EI) also supports L2/L3 MPLS VPN, which enables the DXS-3600 Series to be deployed as the core router of an enterprise environment, or as an aggregation switch in an MPLS environment.
Data Center Features
Data Center Bridging (DCB) is an essential set of enhancements to Ethernet for networking in data center environments. The DXS-3600 Series switches support several core components of Data Center Bridging (DCB) such as IEEE 802.1Qbb, IEEE 802.1Qaz, and IEEE 802.1Qau. IEEE 802.1Qbb (Priority-based Flow Control) provides flow control to ensure there is no data loss during network congestion. IEEE 802.1Qaz (Enhanced Transmission Selection) manages the allocation of bandwidth based on different traffic classes. IEEE 802.1Qau (Congestion Notification) provides congestion management for data flows within network domains to avoid congestion. The DXS-3600 Series switches also support cut-through switching, which reduces latency when transmitting data in a network.
The DXS-3600 Series utilizes front-to-back airflow for increased cooling efficiency, allowing hot and cold isles to be built in the data center and unifying airflow direction when compared to a mix of back-to-front and sideto-side airflow. Modular power supplies provide the option to use AC or DC power inputs, allowing the most efficient choice for the environment to be chosen. The switches also feature built-in smart fans that monitor and detect temperature changes, adjusting the fan speed for maximum efficiency. At lower temperatures, the fans run at a lower speed, reducing both the power consumption and noise output of the switch.
